I'd like to stick with signing as well. We don't have to have 3
sigs/platform for an alpha, for alpha1 I only asked for 2. But it does
help me sleep better at night, knowing that other people have looked at
the potential release (and I'm not the only one to blame if something
goes wrong...)

Sure, I'll do that this afternoon.
